Summer CLT Student Appreciation Week

As we begin the last month of summer, with back-to-school plans just a few weeks out, we return to the people at the heart of the Classic Learning Test: our students. Education is more than a way to keep children out of their parents’ hair until they’re old enough to move out, and has a higher purpose than endowing them with the rudimentary skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic that they will need to find gainful employment. As Aristotle wrote twenty-four centuries ago, all men by nature desire knowledge; to learn is to rise from the animal side of human nature toward the angelic. Education is a door to that knowledge and wisdom which are every person’s birthright.

In honor of our outstanding and hard-working students, we’re dedicating a second week to their contributions to the Journal. Today through Friday, we will be publishing essays and poems written by some of our highest-scoring examinees. We couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments, and wish them all happy summers and edifying school years.

I have learnt much from my teachers, more from my colleagues, and most from my students.

Rav Hanina, Mishnah, tractate 7
